In the fall of 2020, the County prioritized four business sectors that were experiencing significant numbers of COVID-19 outbreaks, complaints, and violations for the pilot Public Health Councils program. Prioritized sectors included apparel manufacturing, food manufacturing, warehousing and storage, and restaurants; a fifth sector, groceries and supermarkets, was later added.

Public Health Councils are comprised of workers that conduct peer-to-peer education with their co-workers, identify potential Health Officer Orders (HOOs) violations, and work to increase HOO compliance at their worksite.
